On Morning Joe this morning, they showed a clip from the "Today" show showed Vice President Biden saying, "We are not there to nation build. We're not out there deciding we're going to turn this into a Jeffersonian democracy and build that country."
Time's editor disagreed.
Did you get that? He says that nation-building is tough to sell to the American public, so therefore Biden is misrepresenting our ambitions in order to sell the war to the public. We are, according to him, indeed nation-building.
Hey Time, where are the pictures of the women and children who have been disfigured simply as a result the years and years of war in their country?
Some of us remember that a major factor in Gore's loss because Americans were tired of Clinton's nation-building. George W Bush ran on a platform that guaranteed we were done meddling in the international affairs of other sovereign nation. As politicians do, he reneged on that promise as quickly as he could. I can only pray that the GOP will make different decisions next time they're handed the keys to the tanks.
